The front legs give protection from splash back as your hound channels the instinct to run. The mud simply washes out ready for the next adventure. This jumper can also be layered under our coats and raincoats on those really cold days.
Best jumper for senior Whippets
As whippets get older mobility can be a challenge. A roomier fitting jumper will be appreciated by any whippet who has difficulty lifting their legs into snug fitting jumpers. Our Gilet Jumper can be worn over a stretchy tee – no issues for oldies to get on and off – or if they still enjoy wearing one of our snug fitting jumpers, pop the gilet over the top for extra warmth.
This Gilet Jumper is also good for newly re-homed rescues who might be nervous of having a jumper put over their heads. The neck opening is wide, no long neck tunnel they may be scared to navigate.
Best Whippet puppy jumper
Training your winter whippet arrival is so much easier if they're not freezing cold while you’re standing outside desperately trying to get them to go to the toilet. Getting them used to wearing a jumper when young will pave the way for a less shivering future. Our Puppy’s First Fleeces are dispatched fast as we know how quick they grow!

The Jura is a hybrid – a jumper with raincoat fabric upper and warm fleece lining and belly. It combines the best of both worlds for active adult whippets who aren’t worried by a little rain when out exploring or zooming about with their pals.
The fleece lining is warm and protective of the chest and belly, the raincoat upper will keep the worst of a shower from soaking in. It’s a hard wearing, stylish alternative to a coat. Ideal for those who love a good run around, it also features a popper up collar.
Best Knitted Jumpers for Whippets

How to measure your Whippet for a jumper
Getting the right fit is important for not just for the look, but comfort. You don’t want seams rubbing delicate legs or panels so long your boy gets the jumper wet when weeing. Our fleece jumpers are super stretchy and designed for a snug fit, but shouldn’t be too tight.
The most important measurements are: the back length, from the top of the spine at the neck end, to the top of the tail. Then the chest, all around the body, behind the front legs at the widest part. Then consider the weight. Use a soft tape measure, while your whippet is standing. Our measurement chart states a guide for the dog’s measurements, not those of the garment.

Do Whippets need jumpers?
Whippets have short hair and don’t carry excess body fat, making them susceptible to the cold and wind, thus benefiting from wearing a well fitted, breed specific jumper. They need the protection from cold and wet, looking stylish is an added bonus. Whippets also feel the cold of an unheated house, at night when the temperature drops and on days when it’s bright but the wind is biting. This blog helps owners choose a suitable jumper for their hound in the cold seasons, whatever their age.
